Design Hotel Sax - luxury accommodation Prague on Lesser Town
The Hotel Sax has retained its classicist appearance. Yet the building is originally medieval and dates from the 14th century. At that time it was owned by a blacksmith named Sax, after whom the hotel was named. In the past, the building also served as an orphanage (16th century) and a hospital for the poor (18th century).
It then served as an apartment block, from the 19th century until 1994, when it was converted into a hotel. The interiors are now fitted out with retro furnishings from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and the designs come from the studio of the architects.

In the rooms you will find:
a laptop with high speed Internet prepared, as well as a DVD player (DVD library at reception) and an LCD television with satellite programming, such as BBC, CNN or Sky.
The interiors of the Hotel Sax will transport you to the 1950s, 60s, or 70s, which typically enjoyed freedom of design and especially the use of materials which the technological progress of the time allowed - plastics and leatherette.
Throughout most of the hotel, originals are used that represent the period's cutting edge in global design (Pantone, Colani, Saarinen, Eames, etc.). This isn't just a current trend, but it is evidence of the quality of a design which has endured.
In order to maintain the functionality of this Prague hotel, certain individual items designed by the hotel architects Pizinger and Sádovská, are manufactured in the retro style.
